Electrical cable for the power pulled out of machine

I reconnected the ground wire but I'm not sure which terminals to connect the neutral(white wire) or the hot feed(black wire) I thought I had them connected right but when I turn on the power without starting the machine it makes a humming noise. The machine is a SUNBEAM SNB652SAAW

Ground wire will be GREEN or bare copper wire. White neutral wire will go to chrome colored AC terminal. BLACK(or maybe brown or other darker color) hot wire goes to brass colored terminal.

If terminals on dishwasher are not chrome(white metal) and brass(yellow metal) colored, then you must look for other ID on Dishwasher side. If terminals or wires on dishwasher side are not a different color, then it does not matter which of the two AC wire, neutral or hot, goes to which. The ground wire is the safety wire against against shock from fault hot wire getting to chassis of washer.

Humming sounds more like dishwasher is in the middle of a timing cycle, but I could be wrong and it is sometimes best to find someone to look at your washer when electrical wires are being hooked up.

How to repair my kenmore dish washer not powering on but shocked me before it shut down for good ?


it sounds to me as though you may have a bare wire giving a direct short to the system.therefore by having a hot wire grounding out on the dishwasher body, it is running that current to the dishwasher body where if you touch the dishwasher you will recieve a shock.this also doesnt allow the electricity to go to where it is needed to power your appliance.

Need wireing diagram for ASKO 1385 SS Dishwasher


My best guess is this; the white and brown are hot(brown) and neutral (white), so they connect to the 2 posts that are parallel to one another. The yellow-green is ground - that connects to the center terminal.

I don't see a power cord - does it need to be hard wired?


Many appliances do not come with a power cord. This leaves the option to the consumer to either hard wire to a terminal box, or purchase and install a power cord. You can purchase a three-prong power cord from any major hardware store. Power tool replacement cords work best, because they handle current well and have thick insulation to prevent chaffing. A good 15 to 20 amp cord is recommended. Whether you hard wire, or add a power cord that you can simply plug in, the wires as terminated as follows (U.S. Standard):

WHITE - NEUTRAL
BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
GREEN - Ground - terminate to ground lug

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

MY DISH washer electric supply wires are cutdown and water pipe of dishwasher cutoff and i want its diagram input which is help full to connect the circut


Hi .. the electrical input to the dishwasher should be a 3 wire cable, black, white, green/bare. The connection is generally into a small metal box just behind the kick plate on the right side of the front of the washer. The cable gets run thru a cable connector to keep the presure off the connection. The connection is black to black, white to white, green/bare to a ground screw in the connection box.

There are cut wires and no cord for the second hand dishwasher i purchased and I need to find out what wires I am connecting and where


There should be a small junction box under the dishwasher behind the front toe panel. There should be three wires:

BLACK - HOT (120VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

You can purchase a three conductor power cord from any hardware store. A 3-prong power tool power cord works the best, as they have a durable outer sheathing and have good current handling properties.

Simply match the corresponding colors (black to black, white to white) and ground the green wire to the chassis. There should be a ground lug somewhere to connect it to.

Use wire lugs when splicing wires together and use the wire strain relief (if equipped) on the junction box. The strain relief is located at the point where the wire enters the junction box and keeps the wires from inadvertently being pulled.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Plug does not go into outlet. Three blade plug with one "J" shaped blade. The outlet has three straight hole to acommodate three straight blades.


Replace the power cord to accomodate the outlet you have. You can purchase them at any hardware store for about $20. This is the easier option than trying to replace the outlet. To replace the cord follow these steps:

1. Remove the access cover on the terminal block on the back of the dryer. This is where the existing power cord is installed.

2. Remove the existing power cord from the terminal block.

3. Remove the power cord restraining clamp (if equipped). This secures the power cord at the entry point on the back of the dryer and prevents it from stressing the terminals and prevents chaffing of the outer insulation on the power cord. NOTE: Its a good idea to have this installed for safety reasons.

4. Remove the old power cord and install the new one following this color scheme at the terminal block:

RED (Hot) - 120VAC
BLACK (Hot) - 120VAC
WHITE (Neutral) - 0 VAC - Should be connected to the terminal block and grounded to the equipment cabinet via a grounding strap.

NOTE: If the power cord or wires at the terminal block are not color coded, the outer two wires (LEFT and RIGHT) are the two hot leads. The center conductor is Neutral.

If you have any questions about this repair, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Loose wires.one white and one black at bottom of dishwasher


the black wire is the HOT wire ... it should be connected to 120 volts AC .. the white wire should be connected to the neutral/return wire (also white) ... the incoming AC line shoiuld also include a bare ground wire .. that should be attached to a green grounding screw ... if your machine is already hooked up then there should not be any wires hanging down not connected .. you may be able to see the incoming wire but it should be covered by the dishwasher panels .. all connnections should be made inside a metal box that should be provided under the machine and there should be a strain relief fitting that keeps the wire from pulling out of the box .. ..

I have a Kenmore Diswasher model. 587.15103801 - My question is - can I wire a 3 prong power cord to it? If so, what do I need to purchase? Thanks


The dishwasher SHOULD have a three prong cord, or be hardwired using using a 3 conductor electrical wire capable of handing 15 to 20 amps (12 or 10 gauge wire). If you desire to use a cord with a plug on the end, you can purchase a power tool replacment cord rated at 15 amps or higher from the hardware store (I have found power tool replacement cords to be very durable). Make sure you purchase one that is long enough the accomodate pulling the dishwasher out from under the counter, if required. The power cord is installed in a junction box behind the lower toe panel that's located directly below the door. The wire color coding is as follows:

BLACK - HOT (120 VAC)
WHITE - NEUTRAL (0 VAC)
GREEN - GROUND

Match the color wires with the wires inside the dishwasher junction box and twist together using wire lugs. Attach the ground wire to the appropriate ground lug.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Still having water problems...


Be VERY careful that you do not generate a shock hazard by connecting the electrical wiring wrong. From the feed, the BLACK wire is HOT and the WHITE wire is NEUTRAL. DO NOT REVERSE these leads.

If the frame of the dishwasher is not grounded (which, from your description, I suspect that it's not), a VERY SERIOUS SHOCK HAZARD could result from wiring it up backward.

That said, the water valve is operated on AC current and thus could care less about polarity of the current coming into it. The fact that you reversed input polarity and it worked is purely coincidence. The fact that you opened the circuit when you made the switch may not be, but ALWAYS follow this convention: BLACK-TO-BLACK, WHITE-TO-WHITE, AND BARE TO GROUND. I can't emphasize this enough.

Although the ground and the neutral lead are ultimately connected to the same buss NEVER use the ground lead as a conductor. ALWAYS connect the white wire to the neutral (white) side of the circuit.

And PLEASE be sure that your neutral buss is well grounded from the breaker box. This could cause a VERY SERIOUS SHOCK HAZARD if it is not. Not to mention it could affect how any appliances and other devices connected to the circuit might work.

I am installing a dishwasher. When I went to wire I had only two wires a white and blue comming through the house wiring and a white and black from the dishwasher. Does blue go to black. White to white...


If you have a volt/ohm meter you can check for Power on the Blue wire. Or you can open the face of your fuse box and look to make sure the Blue wire is connected to the fuse. If it is, just hook up your Black from dishwasher to the blue from house. White to White ( Neutral). There is no real way to ground the dishwasher if your house wiring is a 2 wire (old) system. You shouldn't have a shock hazard if the wires are in the junction box for the dishwasher.
